Guns N' Roses' Drummer -- Welcome to the Pokey

7/18/2008 10:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Steven AdlerTMZ has learned Steven Adler -- former drummer for Guns N' Roses -- was arrested early this morning in Hollywood for possession of narcotics, being under the influence and an outstanding warrant.

Adler is still in police custody.

Earlier this month, the 43-year-old rocker told a radio station he was planning on being part of the cast of "Sober Living," a spin-off of VH1's "Celebrity Rehab." The timing couldn't be better.

UPDATE: The warrant stems from a 2005 case where Adler was charged for being under the influence of a controlled substance and driving on a suspended license. He then sealed his fate by missing a court date in April of 2006.

Yo TMZ staff,
Steven is the former drummer, not guitarist. He's been on drugs since there first album in the 80's. Do your research people.

Adler was the drummer, not the guitarist for GNR. As always, TMZ is tops in quality journalism.

Wow. I was in the Betty Ford Center with him in 1990! He had huge abcesses on his arms from shooting heroin. He was a really nice guy, however. I kind of felt sorry for him.

Oh yeah, that'll make good reality tv: a junkie going through withdrawal. We might actually get to see a real human sacrifice live on television, the ratings will be to DIE for. LOL
